If you can't finish it, prefer to buy the small size (300ml) for one or two people. If you are on the big party or you feel in love with this sake, buying bigger size (720ml) is absolutely your choice. The sake will change the taste after opening more than a day, even though you keep it in refrigerator.[[Category:-20]
